structural a572 gr 42 t beam
A572 plate is a high-strength, low-alloy structural steel that includes five grades42, 50, 55, 60, and 65according to their minimum specified yield strength. For applications requiring notch toughness, Kloeckner Metals also supplies A572 charpy tested. Advantages/Disadvantages Industries Applications Machining Welding Heat Treatment.
The ASTM A572 specification is the Standard Specification for High-Strength Low-Alloy Columbium-Vanadium Structural Steel for plates used in general construction and structural applications. ASTM A572 includes five grades with specified minimum yield strengths of 42, 50, 55, 60, and 65 ksi, respectively. For applications where notch toughness is important, consult SSAB for specific Charpy V ASTM A572 Steel Plate - A572 Grade 42, 50, 55, 60, 65 ASTM A572 steel plate is made of ASTM AA572, a High-Strength Low-Alloy, Columbium-Vanadium Structural Steel. There are five grades of high-strength low-alloy structural steel shapes, plates, sheet piling, and bars. Grades 42 , 50 , and 55  are best for riveted, bolted, or welded structures. Grades 60  and 65  are best for riveted or bolted construction of bridges, or for
ASTM A572. A high-strength low-alloy steel plate that is utilized in a variety of structural applications. This specification is produced in Grades 42, 50, 55, 60 & 65, the grades representing the yield strength. Plates that are 4 and thicker are made to a 42 KSI yield, although material can be modified to reach the 50 KSI min yield.
